general powell db i always have to have a lighter note because this is tough stuff. here is general powell on "meet the press" yesterday. >> there's also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. what do i mean by that? what i mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities. how can i evidence that? when i see a former governor say that the president is shucking and jiving, that's a racial era slave term. when i see another former governor after the president's first debate where he didn't do very well says that the president was lazy. he didn't say he was slow, he was tired, he didn't do well. he said he was lazy. now, it may not mean anything to most americans. but to those of us who are african-americans, the second wort is shiftless and a third word that goes with it. birther, the whole birth movement, why do senior republican leaders tolerate this kind of discussion within the party? >> the great thing about colin powell besides being a great man, he has a great sense of history. >> he does have a sense of history. you know, the thing was he went there.
